are looking for any an opportunity to strike the united states and our interests. megyn: 20 minutes ago i spoke with dana rohrabacher, he was in that briefing yesterday. tony life, congressman dana rohrabacher from california. a member of the house foreign relations committee. he was in the briefing yesterday. welcome to the program. >> thank you very much. megyn: i want to get your reaction to those comments. the secretary of state, hillary clinton, tried to offer some intel on where they think this investigation is now. what can you share with us in terms of what you learned? >> by and large, it was a very top-secret briefing on trent briefing of classified information was being given out. what is most important is the attitude behind that information. as we can see, the president is bending over backwards red as he has been since the beginning of his administration. not to blame radical islam, not to give them some sort of hateful or evil intentions, but giving them the benefit of the doubt. this response to this attack, this murder of american diplomats, on 9/11, it's no doubt that it

. let's review. >> this is a fairly volatile situation and it is in response not to united states policy, not to obviously the administration, not to the american people. it is in response to a video, a film. >> the best assessment we have today is that, in fact, this was not a preplanned, premeditated attack. that what happened initially, it was a spontaneous reaction to what had just transpired in cairo as a consequence of the video. >> we have condemned in the strongest possible terms the violence that has erupted from these protests. and as i have said, the video that sparked these protests is disgusting and reprehensible, and the united states government, of course, had absolutely nothing to do with it. >> all right, now how this event can evolve from an impromptu riot about a youtube video to a premeditated terrorist attack in a span of a week, it can be explained one of three ways. number one, this administration is stupid, simple as that. number two, this administration is on the receiving end of some of the worst intelligence in american history. or number three, we are witnessi
the united states, my new book that you mentioned, here come the black helicopters, u.n. global governance and the lack of freedom talks about treatise he's pushing which is taxing american oil wells offshore, billionaires throughout the world and using that money to go to the third world. going past foreign aid and actually taxing the united states internationally to give the money to the third world. that was at the core of the rio conference. and these schemes are floating around heavily and they lie at the core of obama's view. look, when two-thirds -- in 1980 one-third of our federal budget went to cash transfers to other people, money that we paid people. now it's two-thirds. two-thirds of it goes there. so when you have one percent of the population paying 42% of the tax and two-thirds of the tax going to other people, what do you call that but income redistribution? >> well, i hear you talk about it and others talk about it, you do did of it with a level of certainty and conviction, and i think is it resonating with the voters? there's a new nbc news wall street journal poll, in io

"outfront" tonight, senator bob corker, a republican, was briefed on the attacks today, including secretary of state hillary clinton and director of intelligence. i spoke with him a couple of moments before the show began and asked him about that briefing. >> i will just tell you, the briefing today was an absolute not event. almost a one-hour filibuster. no new information. what you just carried on cnn regarding the interview with the prime minister there is information that was not shared during this briefing and i can tell you it was really, people on both sides of the aisle, i think left there feeling like they had not learned one thing additionally about what happened. so i think all of us just want to get to the bottom of this. you know, we're all concerned and again, today, was basically a one hour filibuster and i do hope that somet

clinton says the united states government has now opened a new inquiry into the attack, an attack libya insists was preplanned. president obama says it's still unclear whether al qaeda was involved. meanwhile, in benghazi, the late ambassador chris stevens and the three other americans killed were remembered at a memorial servi service. >>> well, it's the moment so many consumers have been waiting for, the iphone 5 finally debuts today. people have been lining up for days all over the world for the latest smartphone from apple. the very first of the new handsets was sold in australia to cheers. iphone 5 presales alone topped 2 million according to the company. let's take an early look at the markets as we get all up in your business this morning. cnbc's karen in new york. >> it's going to be getting to the front of the queue because the queues are long. as you mentioned australia, asia and europe is going to be selling the device in the united states later on today. but many people, in fact, won't get to see the device probably till october as the company plays catch-up with the amount
